After winning the Neuqua Invitational, the Metea Invitation, and the DVC conference meet, the Neuqua Valley Wildcats boys swimming and diving team had to be feeling great about their chances to make waves at the State meet in Evanston. After finishing 2nd to the Wildcats at the DVC meet and the Neuqua Invite, perennial power Naperville Central came roaring back with the Metea Valley Sectional championship. The two schools would be sending plenty of swimmers to state as the rivalry moved up to the biggest stage. Not to be outdone, Metea Valley and Waubonsie Valley also had strong sectional showings and were sending many swimmers of their own. Naperville North also look to make their presence felt as the Dupage Valley Conference has evolved into a boys swimming powerhouse.
